Time is just flying by!! It's already March!! So much to do this month! My baby girl is going to be a year old already in 27 more days. I just can't believe how fast time has went by!! All the milestones my lil girl has acheived over the last 11 months makes me want to cry!! I told the hubby I think it's time to start trying for a lil brother or sister for Veronika!! I've been trying to upload pix but between blogger not letting me and our crappy internet connection it's taking forever to get done!!

I recieved the my order of stuff for Veronika's 1st birthday and realized I missed some crucial items that I needed to get so I ordered those and hopefully they get here in time! Another reason why it's good to order everything early in this part of the world! Always have to be prepared and order way a head of time due to where we are located and how our weather only lets us get so many flyable days - then we have to depend on the airlines to make sure they don't have too many people flying back and forth so we can expect space on the plane for the mail to make it in or go out!!

The weather has been just beautiful the last couple days, the suns been out, the water is flat calm and not a breeze in the sky! Our sun rises have been just breath taking - I got a picture I took yesterday which I hope to get posted! Awesome oranges, reds and pinks as the sun is rising - maybe just another sign that a storm is brewing up. We still haven't gotten any snow, but some mornings it gets cold enough for everything to get frost on it!

I sent home a bunch of flower, vegetable and herb seeds and see how those grow around my house this year! I made sure to get perennial flowers so I don't have to worry about replanting them again next year. I am also going to try to plant an apple tree out in front of my house, it's about 2.5ft tall now and I'm getting ready to transplant it once I find a bigger pot for it! I think I might order a new sprouting coconut palm tree to grow in my house. I had one before but I had some people watching my house and I guess they somehow fell on it and broke it and it died.... here I picked that one up in Hawaii back in 2007. I think I have to get my pineapples transplanted and see if those grow a pineapple or not! They have also been growing since 2007! I'm excited to see how my green thumb works out! :D

The airport project should be starting up this month. Everyone is supposed to be arriving here on the island around the 10th or so. I haven't noticed if any of their equipment has made it here yet though. But on the upside we'll be having a lot of people working and getting things moving in the right direction! I never thought I'd see us getting an airport for the village, I always joked not in my life time, but what do you know here we are getting one!! Going to be exciting!! I haven't heard anything on what's going on with our boat harbor lately, but they are working on the road from town to the head of the bay where the boat harbor is going to be located!

So today is the 1st day for the transition to the new Spring/Summer catalog from Scentsy. There are about 26 scents that have been discontinued and 25 new scents for everyone to enjoy!! Out of the new scents I really like Luna, Cherry Limeade, Go-Go-Goji, Honey, Do!, Sugar and Tea Party!!! There are also around 10 new large warmers, 4 new mid-size warmers and 3 new plug-in warmers! This seasons Charitable Cause warmer is called Piece by Piece, designed to represent the mission of Autism Speaks. 100% of the net proceeds from Piece by Piece will be donated directly to Autism Speaks!!! Also this season there are the new Grab Tabs for use in the plug-in warmers, which will let you chang out the wax in your Scentsy plug-ins!! I urge you to check out my website: aprilpelkey.scentsy.us to learn and purchase any of the Scentsy products!! I ensure you that you will love it as much as I do!!! The Scent of the Month is Jumping Jelly Beans - a scent with crisp pear and apple with zesty lemon and sugar!! Also March's Warmer of the Month is called Dotty -a sunny yellow glossy finish and white polka dots are bright and cheerful. The ruffled warmer dish adds a frilly accent like the trumpet on a daffodil. I totally love Scentsy!!!! I'd appreciate it if my fellow bloggers check out my website and learn more about the product and if you want to, buy from my website!

Other than Scentsy, working and taking care of my baby girl not much else is going on right now here on the island! Hopefully the next post will have more information on the airport project and the happenings around this part of the world!! Until then, TTFN!

  1. What type of Internet do you have? I'm guessing Satellite which I had for two years in GA and it was HORRIBLE! I was never so disappointed in an Internet service as I was with Hughes Net

  2. we have internet thru GCI but it seems like we've been having outages the last couple weeks or it will be working one minute and stop for like an hr then come back on for like an hr then go back off.... some days it's dependable, most days it's not... but it's all we have so we deal with it!

  3. I love Scentsy too! when you first blogged about it I checked it out and placed and order! Now I can't get enough of them! they are great! Also it is wonderful that they support Autism speaks. I am the parent of an autistic child, and the challenges are such an up hill battle. My son is 5 and does not speak or use the potty. Thank you for blogging about it and introducing my to the Scentsy products.-Cristi

  4. Cristi - thank you so much for ordering!! Scentsy is an awesome product, isn't it?!?! I mailed you a thank you card, I hope you get it soon!! I wish there was a way I can let you smell all the samples so you can find your favorites!!

    Either this month or next month I am going to start having a drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate to Scentsy if you order in that month! I was talking with some of my Scentsy "bosses" and they said its a great incentive to get people to try out scentsy!!
